Evening Highlight & Contour Routine.

Thanks to Kylie Jenner and the rest of the kardashians we are all crazy for contour and highlighting. Until about a year ago i didnt even know it was possible to completely give the illusion that you face was a defined shape! Well to be perfectly honest, since leaving uni and actually having money to spend on make up and brushes etc I have definitely taken much more notice of applying my make up and doing it properly using brushes etc. 
Youtube videos and beauty bloggers have definitely also been a hugeee inspiration for my love of make up and experimenting with different styles myself and the reason i pick up particular products. So now as i love blogging about products and how ive done my make up.. i decided to show you the products i use to contour myself! 
This look is an evening shimmery one as the product i use to create my contour is not matte and definitely more glowy than i would go for during the day. The essential item to create this look and its unbelievable is the amazing Urban Decay Naked Flush Palette in 'strip' - this palette as you can see from the above photos consists of bronzer, highlighter and blusher. The brushes i use to create my evening contour is the amazing Real Techniques Contour Brush from the 'bold metals' collection, the large fan brush from Spectrum Collections and the large powder brush from spectrum collections. The combination of these brushes creates the perfect contour for me, and now ive learnt how to work each of these brushes to the shape of my face and with the product. To create the glowy highlight I simply using my amazing spectrum collections small fan brush which you simply just sweep the product over the high points of your face and it literally creates the most beautiful shimmery glow!! 
Some of my other top products for contour also include, the collection lasting perfection concealer in shade 'fair', Benefit Watts Up Highlighter, Estee Lauder Double wear in 2C3 Fresco & Bourjois Healthy Mix Face Powder. Each of these i kind of tend to chop and change between but i literally love them all anyway. 
So basically to sum this post up, my 3 holy grail products/items to create my favourite contour is obviously the amazing Flushed Palette, Real techniques Bold Metals flat contour brush & Small fan Spectrum collections brush. 
I would 200% recommend any of the above products for you guys to give a try! Even if you dont get them all, at least get one to try with one of your other contour products! You never know, they may work amazingly for you as well! aaaand, dont worry guys, ive linked them all below for you as well!
